The Chinese bookmaker tried to organize a match-fixing in Dota 2 between the Russian teams Imperial Pro Gaming and VP.Prodigy. According to the representative of Imperial Pro Gaming, an employee of Dotamax.com – this is how the negotiator introduced himself – offered his team 12 thousand dollars for losing to rivals. However, this was denied and the guys from VP.Prodigy were defeated on February 18th. This is not the first known trick of bookmakers from China operating in the eSports market. They are ready to pay the team up to $100,000 for one “leaked” game. As previously reported, the prize pools of Dota 2 tournaments are growing. In particular, the winners of The International were to receive more than $23 million.
